Phobos Approach

Phobos Control kept us waiting for three days.  Seems a war broke out and they needed to get a fleet out to fight the Belters.  I'm not sure if that's going to be good or bad for trade.  Either way, I think I might see if I can get a black market gatling gauss gun or two installed.  At least triple g fire might discourage the casual commerce raider.

For those three days where we weren't making any money, we orbited Mars every seven and a half hours.  Now the library says there's over sixty million people down there.  That's five times as many as the Moon, but only a hundredth the population of Earth.  So the city lights looks sparser than you'd think over the night side. A  lot fewer Marvins than Earthers, but they're all marching in lock step now.

I think the Belters might have stirred up a wasp nest.  The Marvins are used to war and I'm pretty sure they're not going to quit until they kick some Roider ass.

There's bound to be some profit in it.  Just gotta figure out the best angle.

Lyndia Beulke, Captain LSS Barnaby, 4 March 2519
